About this Event

Make Mondays your favorite day of the week!

Improv Foundations: This six-week course is designed to introduce and reinforce the basics of improv comedy with an emphasis on collaborating with new people and having fun! We’ll focus on the building blocks of improv, what makes a great scene, creating characters, and working together to create improvised scenes. If you're new to improv or you're looking to refresh your skills, this course is for you! This course also serves as a foundation for future specialty courses to be offered in 2020.

The class culminates in an optional team performance at our Friday, December 13th at our Holiday Show & Jam. This fun night will feature performances by local comedians, improv players and you making your debut.

If you have ever been curious about improv now is the time to give it a try :)

"It's playtime with smart, brave, funny folks! Improv refreshes the body, mind and spirit." -Cheryl
